  • Great location, wonderful host, would stay again

    "I decided to rent something off the beaten path for my NYC marathon. Why stay midtown, when this place was half the price? Got up early, hopped on the subway (half block from rental) and took the 1 right into Staten Island Ferry. The best thing about this place was the location though, really could not have been better. We only used the subway for a few midtown tourist locations (Guggenheim), otherwise, we walked everywhere (China Town, Soho, Meatpacking District, East Village, Chelsea, Highline Park). Marina was awesome, very accommodating and responsive throughout the entire process. The place was clean and neat. The bathroom situation was a little odd, but honestly, I really did not mind at all. Having a kitchen and lots of great shops nearby in the heart of downtown, totally made up for that small inconvenience. I would stay again in a heartbeat!"

  • A-FREAKING-MAZING

    "Rented the home this weekend with a group of late 20's - mid 30 somethings while we were in the area for a wedding. Very responsive helpful and kind property manager/owner during booking process. This house is absolutely amazing. The pictures don't come close to doing it justice. First off, I would love for the owner to come decorate my apartment. It has a vintage/contemporary vibe going on. The amount of natural light coming in is unreal and nice to wake up to (though not overpowering in the morning thanks to the surrounding forest.) Having 2 full bathrooms was great for us and the home was VERY clean, spacious, and surprisingly private despite the fact that they share the road with other houses. We enjoyed the porch, grill and hot tub, which was SO nice with the fall colors and cool nights. Tip for comfort: recommend bringing a hoodie and some slippers for the night because it can get a little chilly but nothing that these two things can’t fix. We found we were not too far from town, where there are coffee shops, grocery, restaurants, and a little bit of shopping. Bard college is not far away so there is a younger crowd mixed in with the locals and the town has a little bit of a hippy feel to it. The property is convenient to several other small towns (the wedding itself was in Germantown). There is some nice easy hiking in the area as well as apple farms and a fun little corn maze. Great for all types of groups, BOOK IT!! Can’t wait to come back. Highly recommend this property."

  • Highly recommended!

    "We just returned from an incredible week at Shotwell Cottage! The place is perfect for a relaxing and overall very enjoyable getaway. Location can't be beat just a couple of miles from Skaneateles Village. The cottage and cabin are a "great duo" with both having 2 BR's and a bath, and the screened in porch is ideal as a comfortable and scenic place to see the lake, eat breakfast/dinner, and/or relax, read, or play games. The yard area is flat and looks out beautifully on the lake with the dock area just a few steps below with lounge chairs, a picnic table, and a perfectly placed grill to cook out. My daughter and other family members swam daily and made great use of everything Shotwell had to offer. Owners Steve and Sheila were a pleasure to deal with. We were greeted enthusiastically and given a nice tour of the place when we arrived and enjoyed lots of conversation with them being that they also have a background in the NYC area where we are from. Can't say enough about the experience. We hope to be back next summer!"

  • BEST WEEKEND OF THE YEAR SPENT HERE

    "Every year for the NY Sheep & Wool Festival, twelve close friends travel from the all over to spend the weekend in this wonderful, unique and beautifully decorated house. 2014 marked our 3rd year in Conrad's house. There are big rooms for everyone to gather in , and private spaces to chill out in. The grounds are beautiful. The kitchen spacious and well equipped. The bathrooms, clean and elegant. I just have no words for how much "Rhinebeck" weekend spent in this house means to to all of us. It is the highlight of the year. Thank you Conrad!"

New York Travel Tips

New York is a hub of culture, history, diversity and excitement.

New York City is made up of five boroughs: Manhattan, Staten Island, Brooklyn, Queens and the Bronx, while the rest of the upstate region is made up of different cities, town and suburbs. Manhattan and Staten Island are islands off the state’s mainland and accessed through tunnels, bridges and ferries.

Getting around New York is a breeze with an intricate yet user-friendly public transit system as well as the famous yellow taxis. In the city centers, walking is a great way to move around while still experiencing the sights and sounds of the different areas. However, car rentals may be need for those who exploring attractions upstate in areas like the Finger Lakes.

Things to do in New York

Broadway: A trip into Manhattan isn’t complete without taking in a show on the “Great White Way.” Considered the hub of theater in the U.S., Broadway is home to some of the best musical and acting productions in the world.

Cooperstown: Baseball fans won’t want to miss the opportunity to visit Cooperstown, which is not too far from Albany. This area is recognized as the shrine of baseball, and with its small-town charm and stellar views of the countryside, it’s definitely worth the visit. It’s the home of the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum as well as the Fenimore Art Museum and the Glimmerglass Opera. After a pickup baseball game, check out the local cultural attractions for a full day of fun.

Staten Island Ferry: Traveling between Manhattan and Staten Island best done aboard the famous Staten Island ferries. With service between St. George and Whitehall Street, it not only transports people between boroughs, but also delivers stunning views of the Manhattan skyline, New York Harbor, Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty. Along your journey, you can explore the unique attractions each borough has to offer.

Ellis Island: One of the most famous historical sites associated with freedom is New York’s Ellis Island. Situated in Upper New York Bay, Ellis Island was the gateway for millions of immigrants coming to America during the 19th and early 20th centuries. The island is also home the the Statue of Liberty, which was usually the first thing immigrants saw when they came off of the boats. Ellis Island houses a museum of immigration where visitors can learn all about the island’s history and even trace their own ancestral roots.

Central Park: No trip to the Big Apple is complete without a walk through Central Park. This public space opened in 1857 and is situated in the center of this borough. The park is the perfect location for a relaxing stroll or a lovely lunchtime picnic. Enjoy a friendly game of frisbee or hop in the saddle and take a horseback ride through the North Woods - you might actually forget you are in the country's biggest metropolis! Providing stunning visuals in all four seasons, Central Park is the perfect place to experience some greenery and nature in the middle of concrete and skyscrapers.

Niagara Falls: Niagara Falls is best seen from the Maid of the Mist, a boat cruise ferrying visitors right alongside the rapids. You can also experience the falls from Prospect Park Point walkways. It’s quite a sight to witness this majestic natural attraction in person. After a visit to the falls themselves, you can spend some time exploring the rest of Niagara Falls State Park, hiking around trails or taking a trolley ride and experiencing a guided tour to learn all about the park.

Duckwalk Vineyards: New York is full of successful wineries, such as Duckwalk Vineyards. With two locations in Southampton and Long Island, this winery has truly made its place. On the North Fork of Long Island, 30 acres of sauvignon grapevines grow, waiting for harvest. It’s also the perfect location for a wine tasting while visiting the wine trail.

Shopping and Dining in New York

Macy’s: Manhattan is home to the famous Macy’s flagship store, which opened in 1924. It became the world’s largest department store. Head to the corner of 34th Street and Herald Square to do some shopping here and feel a part of history.

Woodbury Common: With more than 220 stores, Woodbury Common is one of the largest outlet shopping centers in the world and certainly worth a trip. With such an array of shops, you’re sure to find anything you’re looking for here.

Jack’s Oyster House: For almost 100 years, this family-owned restaurant has been serving up hungry patrons giant porterhouse steaks and fresh seafood dishes with a French twist. With elegant decor and an interesting history, this is one eatery in Albany you can't miss.

Sardi’s: Before taking in a show, eat a Sardi’s, an eatery considered the toast of Broadway. Located in the heart of the Theater District, Sardi’s is the birthplace of the Tony Aways, and caricatures of celebrities adorn the wall.

Chinatown: For an authentic Chinese meal, head to New York’s Chinatown. Boasting the largest influence of Chinese heritage in the western hemisphere, this is the place to get handmade noodles and dim sum. Explore the different shops and attractions in Chinatown to really feel immersed in this culture.
